Pattern for convertible pants
Ready made pants like this are pricey, i.e. $70.00 or so. If you are not familiar with this type, it is pants where the lower portion unzips, leaving you with above the knee shorts - ideal for travel when one might encounter cool day/hot day within a few hours.
I have a trip planned this Fall to Costa Rica and these pants were suggested by the tour operator. I realllllly don't want to spend $70.00 for pants I might never wear again when the trip is over.
Anyone ever seen a pattern for these? or any ideas on what type pattern to purchase and then modify? straight legs I would guess.
